Upchurch Watson White & Max recently sponsored its first "Lean In" luncheon for 2015. This program was organized in 2013 and is loosely based on the writings of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and her book of the same name. Its goal is to educate, inspire and mentor women in the legal profession and provide them with a vital network.

The latest "Lean In" topic was "Connecting with your Professional Destiny," led by Yvonne Yegge. Ms. Yegge is a private practitioner representing governmental entities on ad valorem tax issues. These luncheons are hosted quarterly in Maitland, Fla., by UWWM Shareholder Michelle Jernigan, UWWM Partner Kimberly Sands and Ms. Yegge, by virtue of her interest in the group's objectives and her honorary membership with the UWWM family as wife of UWWM Shareholder Richard Lord.

The program featured Rebecca Palmer, a partner with Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, and Andrea Jernigan-Gwinn, a principal and civil engineer with Civil/Site Engineering, Inc.
